Birthday cards

I needed a couple more birthday cards for September for work. I wasn't sure what I wanted to make until I read the Cuttlebug Challenge blog and cased this card! Thanks Courtney Lee for the great idea!

I know I am not ready to go back to work. I cleaned up a chunk of my stash and know what I want to get rid of, but have run out of time to take care of it. I have much more cleaning and reorganizing to do. Such an addiction! My husband commented the other day that it never ends when I said I needed some new tool! LOL

Third Thank You Card

Well I cannot get the darned picture to go where I want it to for some reason so it will just be at the top of the page! This is my third thank you card. My friend Sue gave me Tattered Rose and Shabby Shutters, Tim Holtz Distressed Inks for my birthday. I used the colors on her thank you card.

I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Vintage Photo and found a blending pen in my stash of stuff. I used it to paint the ink onto the image. I think the blender pen made the Vintage Photo bleed but I like the way it looks. I used some Peeled Paint and Vintage Velvet to add shading to the card. The stamp is Stampin' Up.

I was pretty proud of myself that I made two cards yesterday! See what happens when I get time off!

Another Thank You Card

I made another thank you card for some friends who gave me a $25 gift card for my birthday! I opened the mail a few hours before I was going to Craft Warehouse! I bought the Tim Holtz's Winged Heart die with part of my gift card (I had a 40% off coupon so it was a score!). Plus I bought a few other things including Distress Clear Crackle Paint which I am anxious to use.

The three dots at the bottom and on the heart inside the card are red rhinestones which didn't show their bling when I took their picture.
